Live Ancient Rome Walking Tour

Book a guided tour with an expert, authorized tour guide to explore Ancient Rome through a 3D certificate historical reconstruction of the Colosseum, in a completely immersive and virtual way! A real family tour experience, suitable for all family members because informative, educational and entertaining!

With a walking tour of Ancient Rome led by one of our professional guides, you will discover the culture, religion and everyday life; from the settlements of the first inhabitants of the Eternal City to the spectacles of the Colosseum.

Before making your way inside on the Colosseum with the ticket “Skip the Line“, you will wear a last-generation display Oculus VR, to be virtually immersed in ancient Colosseum history, nearly 2000 years ago, when the amphiteatre knew its moments of greatest glory and fame.

Through the animated reconstruction in 3D of the Colosseum and integrated by an accurate audio description , you can walk “live” in the square, admiring the majestic statue of Nero, inside the arena, between the roar of ferocious lions and gladiator combat, and finally into the mysterious underground where slaves move around silently to prepare and coordinate all the paraphernalia necessary to make the show a success.

Only the three-dimensional reconstructions of ancient monuments can offer a comprehensive understanding of their history and allow you to “see” and “relive” the life of Roman people as if you were travelling back into ancient times, experiencing in this way a multimedia and multisensory tour experience.

Completing the virtual experience, your guide will accompany you inside the most famous and best preserved ancient monument in the world, the Colosseum. Symbol of Rome and all Italy, the Flavian Amphitheatre, better known as the Colosseum, was the place where spectacles happened and built to accommodate from 50.000 to 75.000 spectators.

 

Once finished your adventure inside the Colosseum, your tour guide will take you through the triumph of the emperors: what we call Roman Forum or simply the squares built by the rulers of the Empire to glorify their power.

Passing directly from Roman Forum you will find out Palatine hill, the House of Romulus – founder of Rome. This open air museum is one of the seven hills of Rome which provides the history of the Roman settlements displaying houses, temples and many other places of daily life.
